I’ve started noticing that some apps and websites, typically those in the wellbeing space, are offering free or reduced fee access in response to the Coronavirus outbreak.
I’ll keep a list here as I find them. If you find a cool wellbeing focused app offering free or reduced fee access during this time, let me know and I can add to the list below.
Just because I have included them below doesn’t mean I endorse the apps. I haven’t had the chance to try these apps. There might also be some geographical blocks in place, so I apologise if one of these apps isn’t available.
If you have an experience with one of these apps, let me know, whether it is positive or negative.
